On the weekend of the 22/23 February, we took part in the British University Chess Championships. The team was made up of Dominik Csiba, Boris Mitrovic, David Oswald and myself. Despite having to wake up in the early hours of Saturday morning to catch our flight, team spirits were high, and we were hoping for a repeat of our winning performance back in 2012.
This year the tournament had a new venue, the Birmingham Airport Holiday Inn. The rooms and playing hall were very nice, and David even made use of the swimming pool and jacuzzi before the first round!
